have found from my study of the Bible that God uses ordinary events in the Scriptures to give us insight into future events before they happen. We find one such event recorded in the Gospel of John, which gives an account of Lazarus’ death and
resurrection. John 11:1-4 says, Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister
Martha. (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.) Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick. When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.
